Heavy holiday eating might have you looking for a reason to have a fitness-driven New Year's resolution.
The new wave in group fitness challenges people to do land exercises in the water, all while taking the impact off of joints.
"Something that people don't realize is it's 12 times harder to move through water than it is on land," says Group Fitness Instructor Toni Kennedy.
She says it's up to each person to decide how revved up their work-out will be, using noodles and buoyancy weights.
"You already have your body moving through water, then when you add these buoyant devices, it can even further add intensity."
You can easily burn 300 calories while also reducing your injury risk compared to other forms of exercise.
